January 14, 2011

Crews staying ahead of snow fall

January 13, 2011

In a county like Marshall County even snow removal can be a little bit different.
While county road crews deal with their own problems like blowing and drifting, city crews have another problem entirely. Where do you put all this stuff?
“It's really tough especially at intersections,” said Plymouth Street Superintendent Jim Marquardt. “You pile it up as best you can but when it gets too high you have to load it up and take it someplace else.”

Slippery roads to blame for crash

January 13, 2011

PLYMOUTH — A slippery road at the intersection of Olive Trail and Overmyer Drive in Plymouth were to blame for a one-vehicle accident Sunday afternoon. At 12:45 p.m. Howard Holland, Plymouth, 85, was driving a red 2002 Dodge Caravan south on Overmyer Drive and attempted to turn right onto Olive Trail but his van kept on turning.

Prom dresses needed

January 13, 2011

If a Plymouth High School girl attends every available formal dance, it could mean purchasing six formal gowns before she graduates.
Not only is this cost out of reach for many, it is also impractical for a young woman to own and store so many dresses she will likely wear just once.
Plymouth’s Beta Delta chapter of the local women’s philanthropic organization, Tri Kappa, has a solution: The second annual Promen-ade To Prom — a chance to recycle or buy a gently used dress for just $10.
